of the united states and africa is by strengthening the defense capabilities of african nations so that they are able to provide for their own security and, importantly, increasingly contribute to regional security and stability as well. now, like every other u.s. military organization we have to always be prepared to conduct military operations at the direction of our president and the secretary of defense. the operations in libya in 2011 are an example of that. when so directed by our president, then we have to take on those kinds of actions. but mostly we think our effort is best when we are working to increase the capabilities of our african partners. our activities in africa are guided by two overarching but simple principles. the first is simply that a safe, stable, secure africa is in the best interests not only of the african cups, but of our country as well. and the second principle is one that was articulated first by president obama when he visited ghana in 2009 and where our president stated that in the long runs the africans who are best able and best capable of addres

take you three or four years before you have to make the changes, but there is no defense to making the changes. even if it is a historical building. that is not a defense. when i get involved, it is because 90% of the time, the tenant is the only one who gets the notice, though the notice is addressed both to the tenant and landlord. next thing you see, you are handed a piece of paper by some stranger, and it is a lawsuit. then you need to find a lawyer. probably 90% of these cases are in federal court. it becomes much more costly to get a lawyer involved. most lawyers charged somewhere between $5,000 or $10,000 to get involved in some of these cases. you need to file a formal answer in the court. you will be in a mediation process, which means you will meet with people appointed by the court to try to resolve this issue. the revolution is just what i said. it is major repairs if they are appropriate, and not all repairs are in demand. and, to settle the damaged portion of the case. in my experience, the damages claimed usually run somewhere between $15,000 or $5,000, and attorneys
